I bought a little over 20 d51s's and I am trying to get the most money out of them, but am not sure where the current market is for these kinds of computers.
Background: They all are P4 2.4GHz,1 CD-ROM,1 Floppy drives, most do not have ram, none of them have hard drives.
I am wondering would they be better for desktops or like servers. I assume servers but I am not sure if everyone out there has a use for them (as much as a normal desktop).
If I go with desktops... I would like to keep the ram budget to $20 but I also want 2GB and 1GB of DDR seems to cost 20 alone (for non-ecc). And I am not sure if this comp works with ecc ram (will have to test unless someone else can find out).
But servers seem more practical all the way around, for the most part. But I had a few questions on this too. What is the best OS for a server that is good for home storage, ftp share, bittorent w/ proxy client and / or a vpc. I like linux but I am not adapted to it myself yet and do not want to sell comps with an OS I am not too familiar with; so maybe linux based but windows based (So I can double click an .exe instead of apt-get install etc...). And is it fine that I install a 2TB Sata hard drive with an adapter to IDE?
